About the Book

I love stories, and I have collected a few over the course of my life and career that resonates with me. I’ve worked in both the public and private sectors. I’ve also wandered into others as life may have it. Each chapter here intends to tell a story in an attempt to humanize the topic without offering a concrete solution; instead, I let readers draw their own conclusions and, hopefully, find the story useful. The lessons that I have learned over the years revolve around, how being vulnerable can be healthy for us; having compassion toward one another, and forgiving those who have wronged us are soft skills for everyday living.
